LEDs are far more luminous than incandescent bulbs. They provide light that is not only considerably brighter, for improved visibility and vehicle conspicuity, but also much more attractive.
LED bulbs typically last 50,000 hours or more compared to only 2000 hours for conventional incandescent bulbs.
Cooler & More Efficient
Incandescent bulbs waste much of the energy they consume creating unwanted heat. In contrast LEDs create light using much less energy and operate at significantly cooler temperatures.
Faster Rise Time
LEDs light up 0.2 seconds faster than incandescent bulbs. This is advantageous for brake lights because it can give the driver behind you additional stopping distance - almost 20 ft. when driving at 60 mph.
Easy Plug and Play Installation
These bulbs will fit into the same socket and/or connect to the same wiring connector as your original bulbs. No modifications to your vehicle are necessary for installation.
CAN Bus Compatible
Built-in load resistors prevent error messages on modern vehicles with CAN Bus systems.
Thoroughly tested for durability, shock resistance, and dependable operation in any kind of weather.
Backed by a 1-year warranty
This warranty does not apply to any products that have been subjected to misuse, mishandling, misapplication, neglect, improper installation, or alterations.
PlaZma Series Replacement LED Bulbs are the brightest LED bulbs that Lumen offers, with twice the brilliance of standard LED bulbs and far more luminance than original equipment incandescent bulbs. When installed in your vehicle’s interior lights, everything inside your cabin will be illuminated in vivid detail on even the darkest nights. Equip your exterior lights with plasma LEDs and your vehicle will clearly stand out and be plainly visible to other motorists, to the benefit of your driving safety. Whereas standard LEDs emit light directly from semiconductor chips when current is applied, a plasma bulb develops its light intensity when a solid state power amplifier generates a radio frequency signal that is directed into an electric field created inside the bulb. Once current is applied, gas and metal halide materials inside the bulb vaporize into a plasma state to create extremely radiant light.
Yet this brilliant light is created much more efficiently. Plasma LEDs generate 150 lumens per watt compared to the 70 lumens per watt generated by standard LEDs and 15 lumens per watt that is typical for incandescent bulbs. This efficiency stems from the fact that more power is used to create light instead of heat and cooler operation means you won’t experience lens cracking, distortion, or discoloration. PlaZma Series Replacement LED bulbs come in sizes for all popular interior light applications including festoon and bayonet styles. And whether they’re for tail lights, turn signals, side marker lights or any other exterior lights, there are PlaZma Series bulbs for the application, including single and double contact bulbs and H series bulbs, and all have the brightness to not only make your vehicle visible but also make your intentions known when you’re braking and turning.
LED bulbs are particularly appropriate for brake lights because of their faster rise time. They light up 0.2 seconds faster than incandescent bulbs, which may not sound like much, but when you consider that at 60 mph a car travels 88 ft. in one second, that time can give the driver behind almost 20 ft. of additional stopping distance - extra road that can be the difference between braking in time and an unfortunate collision. But practicality aside, these bulbs can also provide an appearance upgrade for your car or truck. Their brilliant luster is sure to attract the attention of not just ordinary motorists but car enthusiast as well. Along with being brighter, the light they produce is more attractive and eye-catching, plus they’re available in a range of popular colors. Use them to create a unique and pleasant atmosphere in the cabin and make your vehicle stand out anywhere.
PlaZma Series Replacement LED Bulbs are designed to connect to the same socket or electrical connector and fit in the same light housing as your original incandescent bulbs, for an easy plug and play installation. They’ll last 50,000 hours or more compared to the 2000 hours that is typical of incandescent bulbs, so you’ll most likely never have to replace them, or be unexpectedly pulled over by law enforcement for a burned out tail light. And because these bulbs don’t have fragile filaments like incandescent bulbs, which can fail due to shock and vibration, you can depend on them to work no matter where you drive, over rugged terrain off-road or pothole-strewn city streets.
